Fresh hot biscuits slathered with butter, topped with a spoonful of jam, and served alongside fluffy scrambled eggs and a salty pork product are the epitome of a cozy breakfast (or dinner).

Cook's Notes

For softer, cakier biscuits, add more milk and spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet. Firmer biscuits require less milk and should be rolled out and cut.

    The recipe is definitely basic. Good flavor. I have an electric oven so I only needed to bake for around 10 min. 13 min made them over bake/too dark on bottom. If I make this recipe again, I may a dash of sugar. They tasted good with strawberry jam or a dipping in some maple syrup.

    I love this recipe. When I tried it the first time I thought it was great. A year went by and I got the urge to make biscuits so I came back to this recipe. This time I did not have any milk, but I had evaporated milk and whipping cream. I mixed the two and it worked out perfectly. I try to stay away from flour which is why it took me a year to make them again, but I am making this my go-to recipe every time I have a hankerin'.

    I love this recipe! I did my own spin by omiting the salt and instead of 1¾ cups of flour, I used 1¼ cup of flour and ½ cup of pancake mix, which made a biscuit that tastes light as air. It's so delicious!!!!

    I bake at least once a week. I find lots of recipes that are always interesting, but never meet up on it. This one was a great learning experience as baking biscuits never taste as good. Usually I go for throwing in a ton of sugar, only making cookies. But this one really stuck out.

    I like these biscuits. But seriously, your website has become the worst. I do not appreciate the hostile videos that creep all over the screen. You're losing a customer if you can't make it stop.

    These is my go to biscuit recipe for my son. I have made them with spelt flour and one that was 60% whole wheat. I reduce the salt by half and I add raisins. I add extra milk because my son likes the drop style biscuits. These are our favorite.

    My family doesn't like biscuits, but they love these. I didn't have unsalted butter, so I made the biscuits without added salt.

    Can I substitute buttermilk for the milk? I've made the recipe once before, as written, and it was delicious. I just happen to have buttermilk in the fridge and thought it might be good, but am just beginning to bake and don't want to screw it up. :)
